Employers have comprehensive needs when they’re looking for new employees. While most job seekers are aware of the specific qualifications listed in a job description, some of the top skills that employers are seeking are actually more generic. For example, skills such as the ability to communicate, both verbally and in writing, or working within a diverse team, are valuable in almost every workplace. Learn more about the skills that are most important to hiring companies and how to acquire them in order to be as competitive as possible.

Facilitated by a TBJL Career Strategist

WHAT IS LINKS: LINKS is an acronym for Leads, Information, Networking, Know-how, and Strategies. It is an educational and motivational program designed to help candidates prepare for the week ahead and to share conversation, contacts, and job-search information in a relaxed, welcoming environment. For the unemployed professional, LINKS is a “place to go” to focus on the job search when others go to work on Monday Mornings. LINKS sessions are free and open to the public. Reservations are required.

LINKS is supported by the Vinik Family Foundation, Jeff and Penny Vinik, Trustees, and the SunTrust Foundation
